White Mage - Drawn by Mahrkale

I can has solar-powered trash compactors?

Been seeing these popping up in Center City Philadelphia over the last few weeks:

I'm guessing there must be some benefit to these, as regular trashcans have been replaced by these units. There are solar cells on top (the top is transparent, even if it doesn't look it from this picture), which I'm assuming powers a trash compactor inside.
